I personally think it was a mistake to make viola's the lead instrument, not only for the fact that they sound odd in place of the light tinkly sound originally used, but they're executed a tad too slowly. The sound would do well with more sleigh bells and xylophones for the lead while violins and chellos slowly build up in the background chorus to create a magnificent tangent of music near the climax of the song and slowly die down to the end.
Personally, I think it's..
Too slow and some notes is out of tune.. it's just sounds weird on my ears - and the violin echo in the beginning is disturbing, makes the note harder to read. The violin stopping on 00:58 is very very weird.
But the ending is good.
I know maybe you want to make it mellow, but you can add piano on the back and cello (orchestra-like). Listen more to the original song, maybe you'll know where you're wrong.
TOO SLOW >_<
Speed IT UP!!!
Other wise the violins were amazing and it seemed to fit into itself
This sounds a lot like the kokiri forest from LOZW
remeber in the great duku tree place?
Truly love it
it's not perfect. i think it needs a different and more upbeat background. soft piano? also you need to keep the background on at all times if you ask me. otherwise it is truly great...
I was going for a more classical and somewhat sad or meloncholy, so too upbeat wouldn't have worked.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
